Frequent questions about inclined platform lifts

Yes. The EXTREMA stairlift is designed to handle any situation in the best way, even the most complex. The possibility of travelling in curves, with curves in the opposite direction, rapid changes in the inclination, flat curves or tracts, makes the EXTREMA stairlift particularly indicated for offering an optimal service also where there is a limited amount of available space.

Unlike most of the products on the market, the EXTREMA stairlift is characterised by the fact that there is no traction unit onboard the machine. This lets you limit the space occupied by the platform, both along the ramp when it is moving and when it is stationary in the parking zone.

Yes. The EXTREMA stairlift is available in both indoor and outdoor versions. In this case the parts exposed are protected with special treatments or supplied in stainless steel. This makes the system resistant to the elements and lets it function properly also in critical climatic conditions.

Frequent questions about vertical platform lifts

Yes. EXTREMA designs and realises its lift platforms on the basis of the dimensions specifically agreed on with the customer, not using standard prefabricated modules. This means made-to-measure products, which can also be installed in particularly restricted spaces.

You need a 12 cm trench for the installation of Sirio and MiniSirio. If it is impossible to do the excavations in the floor, a ramp can be installed for the slight difference in level.

Yes. EXTREMA has specifically designed MiniSirio to solve these problems. In general the head required (in other words the distance between the floor and the ceiling on the top floor) is just 1600 mm, a typical height in mansard roofs and lofts.

There is a wide choice of colours and materials. Consult the colour chart for more information on these customised options.

In the case of blackout, the EXTREMA lift platforms are equipped with a device that lets them always return safely to the bottom floor.

Sirio lifting capacity varies from 315 to 500 kg (daN) according to the platform dimensions; Teorema and MiniSirio lifting capacity is always 315 kg (daN).
